Great seafood, warm atmosphere, great service. It's our "go to" place for family celebrations. Big menu, even if you don't want seafood. Outdoor grounds are beautiful during warm weather.

This is a very cute restaurant on the water and the food is good. Service was attentive. I’d be happy to return if invited again. You can have drinks outside in the summer and that’s a very pleasant view.
